The pouch of cat food I opened for Sharky’s dinner said ‘Beef’. It also said ‘Buey’ and ‘Vaca’.
“Buey,” I lowed. “Buey, buey.”
The cat raised his eyebrows at me from his vantage point on the kitchen floor.
“That’s the noise it makes,” I said. “Till you come along and eat it, that is.”
Sharky smacked his lips enthusiastically.
That’s not artistic licence of any type – he really did choose that moment to lick his chops. He does it anyway as sign language for “I would like some food please.” I like to think that he was listening with eager attention to my lecture, but it’s more likely he was thinking “I wish the old cow would slap that Buey on a dish already – I’m starving!”

His manners are often lacking when it comes to food, but, we adore him anyways as he offers us hours and hours of amusement and cuddling! Aly
